Isabel Morse Jones, music crlt- is for the Los Angeles Times, in her review of the . Ballet says, "Skyscrapers" as a musical composition is a pictur& of modern America written with brilliant condescension. Harold He< r»t worked out hia ballet ideas with intelligent adroitness. Blanding Sloan executing a stunning construction design against the white glare of the newly painted shell that was quite the most remarkable set ever seen in the bowl."* Arthur Mlllier, art editor of the Times says "Blanding Sloan was Adjudged by many spectators the I need a protector and someone to love me as I know you do—I only hope I feel well and rested when I see you." Read, returning tq California over the same' railroad tracks on which the romance had blossomed, wrote; •• "Dearest Claire—Sweetheart, I never knew before just how many years I had in me. I have had your picture out .almost continuously. If tberc was only a way to get off this, train and get back to you for just one more kiss, I think I would probably do it, . . Be good, swetheart, and think of your Al."" principal hero of "'Skyscrapers ballet recently presented in Hollywood bowl, by reason of his clever, simple stage setting with Us imaginative us& of lights and of shadows'. And so on the comments, trsetl Full Possibilities In general Sloan has been credited with being the first designer to have exploited the 1 immense possibilities of the bowl by having recognized limitations and the differences in treatment for achieving effects as compared to those •used In the .ordinary stage' productions. The problem of reaching so vast an audience as 20,000 where there is a .well developed loud speaker system, but where there is no similar aid for the eye, is something that challenged the imagination of Sloan. The human figure or masses of figures became mere pin points seen at such a distance and on a background '50 feet in height and on a series of stages and fore stages irf terraced formation that approximated 146 feet in width, the effectiveness of their movement is entirely lost without original handl- incr. * ' siban designated a set that took the form of a skyscraper in process of construction. The ballet consisted of some 100 dancers who moved in and about and the. sot as -well as on the stages. In his lighting design Sloan proejcted huge shadows of the figures onto the background so that their move-, mcnta were interesting and perfectly discernible to the entire audience. Th use of these shadows progression to the climax when the shadow of a dancer moving in the rhythm of a swinging sledge hammer, was projected onto the background—this shadow so huge as to dominate the entire Skyscraper ' and the sky. The technique.of handling this set as devised by. Sloan was maste;- U During the intermission, -preceding the ballet number, the, set was moved onto the stage In 6 pieces, manipulated by four men and slipping O n_ paraffine. In the dim light, it gave one an eerie feeling,to sea this skyscraper form slip into place as though one saw a tall building suddenly take up its bed'and walk.. . Scene Hushes Crowd. Then when 'the lighting- Came on, there was a great hush of- surprise and applause from 20.0UU including the visiting.' Governors from 40 7-ates, as they saw the beauty of a giant steel . structure with its shadows on background, tinted in all the colors of a sunrise.- Blanding Sloan was born , in Corsicana, a son of the former .V>r. A. C. Sloan. His mother still resides here. ' . „, Since .going to California Sloan has worked in the field of etching and has maintained-his own marionette theatre. His etchings have been exhibited in one man showings in some sixty : of this country's leading ' museums. Sloan's next theatre commission is that of designing" the settings and the lighting for the Harper Mitchell concert series Francisco, in which will sented Clarence Muse the famous negro singer and actor, Carma Lita Maracci, Italian - dancer, and other -world famous dancers and singers.
